Freelancers Union

Just watched a segment on the News about the relatively new Freelancers Union. I haven't looked into it yet other than seeing it on TV. The Union doesn't cost any thing to join. They offer health, dental and disability insurance at reduced rates. They also have classes on how to do your taxes and online articles on how to find work in this market.

I'd love to hear if anyone is already apart of the Freelancers Union and what they think. Or thoughts from others who are looking into this union.

  1. I am the concerned parent of a 29 years old college graduate in good health who works in seasonal outdoor education. His work takes him to various locations, so state based insurance is not an option. Income is modest, but has worked steadily for the past 1 1/2 years.

  2. This is going to be an interesting topic over the coming years. The "union" can't do too much for us, but it's a start.
